Thanks Ranger431 for your input! For our needs the outdoor kitchen outweighs the space lost in the trailer. We have a queen air mattress we can throw on the floor if need be.
We had a nice set-up for a kitchen but this will simplify things for us. Clearance won't be an issue for us but thats a good thing to be aware of for the times we do stop and a provincial park. Oh and don't worry the beer is always on ice

New to Jayco

We also have a 2012 32TSBH. It's a great camper and the space is amazing and almost unrivaled in many RVs we've seen. I happened to notice last year that Jayco is offering an outdoor kitchen with it now. Pretty cool, but for us the extra space is more valuable. To each their own. The J-cubes are equally amazing as the 10'x14' space in back and can be completely removed providing a lot of flexibility. Keep in mind also that you'll want to have your bumper reinforced at a local shop before you hitch up your boat. The 32TSBH's bumper is pretty stout on it's own and can easily handle a suitable RV bike rack with 80lbs of bikes, but towing is a whole different deal. The 32TSBH is a sharp camper and you'll really enjoy it!

Has anyone had experience with Jayco's extended warranty? They offered us another 5yr warranty and if you don't claim anything during that time you get your original cost back... I'm always sceptical regarding these "extended warranties". Our 32tsbh has been officially ordered but will take a couple months probably to get here. We are excited for warm weather!

What a great trailer - way too much for our humble needs at this point, but very nice.

I asked some similar questions about dealer options and warranty extensions and got some good advice here

I've never heard of that, sounds interesting.

I.just dropped my TT off for some minor warranty work. Really nothing I couldn't take care of.

The door lock stuck, a drawer was a little loose, a trim.price along the tub was loose.

The only things I was really concerned about, but hadn't became a problem yet was the seam tape on the tops.of the slides looked like it was starting to pull up, and there is a nail or screw on the roof that looks like is is backing out, and causing the rubber roof to look like a little tent - wanna get that fixed before a leak.

I'm on my 3rd Jaycco, and have been very impressed with the quality on all of them, and the customer service has always.been great.

We have a great dealer here aswell and I'm convinced they will take care of me if I have any issues. Our salesman was great, knew the product and never pushed us for anything. This will be my first Jayco TT and by the sounds of it I'm in good hands. I think the extra warranty was from some other company, I'm gonna pass on it.

We did the same thing with the warranty, I too am still skeptical about it and haven't used it so that is a good thing. One thing we were told is you have to ask for the money if you don't use it they don't just send you a cheque and you have a limited period to get it. I hope I don't have to use it but it is some piece of mind in the mean time. We have been very happy with our trailer. Warranty issues were looked after quickly for us and without issue, we just had some little things that I think most people have with a new trailer regardless of brand. We will start looking at Jayco when we are ready for a new trailer.

One thing I can't stress / recommend enough, especially if you are financing any of It is gap insurance

Our last Jayco was a little over a year old when it was stolen (32 BHDS), and the thought of having to pay for something you no longer have would tear me up. A wreck could be just as bad.

I did buy the extended warranty, it wasn't that much more, and knowing my luck I would have a fridge or AC go out the week after the factory warrant expired.

Another question for you 32TSBH owners.....Where abouts is that huge fresh water tank mounted and how does it affect the tongue weight when full? I'm hoping it's mounted closer to the trailer axles so they can take most of the weight. We often are gone for a week and will rely solely on that water source so it will be full when towing....

New to Jayco

Hmmm... Funny you asked that I have a thread on here that shares my experience with this topic when I picked up our new 32TSBH after the PDI. There are actually two 40 gallon or so connected freshwater tanks towards located more towards the front. I had my Shurline scale handy and before I hitched up I happened to check the tongue weight to verify everything was good. Needless to say my shock when the needle hit 1200+ lbs. It took me a second, but I realized they had left the freshwater tanks full from a test they did earlier. We opened the valves, drained the tanks, and sure enough, we dropped around 200 lbs. off the tongue weight. There's your answer
